V W. Uorwn, tho extensive sheep
nod horso iiiiim of tho Gap llanoh
and tho desert country, was ntnong
our visitors during thin week. Mr.
IJruwu states there's a lot of grass
on the desert, especially nroiiml the
Wiicunllro section, but It has been
so dry during thu past suason the
forago Is of little value for food, as
It has lost all nutrition, lie has In
mind securing a quantity of corn
which hu will feed his sheep In thu
vicinity of tho (lap Itancb nnd allow
them to forage on the range. Mr.
Ilrown says there are a lot of horsnls
on tho range and while thoy mny
have some value It Is not suluclont
to Justify feeding them expensive
liny. However, Mr. Ilrown Is of tho
opinion thnt these wild horses are
not such a moiiaco Just at proont
as they will bo a benefit In cleaning
up the old grass on the range that
Is really In tho way of the now
growth, besides, bo points out. there
Is n Inck of stock on tho ranges In
this r.ectlon at this tlmo nnd there
will ho fewer next season with the
present deslro of soiling off tho cat
tle, and wo may find tip) horse of
moro value than wo now realize.

To pioneers of thu west, tho men.
and women who have hnd n hand In
tho reclamation of desert land and
arid country that today Is blooming
with crops, a mention of "false Irri
gation projects" Is like waving u red
flag In a bull's face.
A hint of the tragedy that has
overtaken many n courageous family
co in i j west to return to tho soil Is
given In "What A Wlfo Learnod,"

The opening scenes of tho plotiiro

Nearby Ih n dnm that Is only par
tially completed. In spltn of tho fact
that thu surrounding country is al
most barren thoro aro a number of
families living In mlsorablo shacks,
trying to eke out an uxlstonco. Come
west upon promise of water to Irri
gate tbeno fields, they have bcui left
to starve when the promotion torn
pnny'n money gives out.
"Home day, someone with roitrng
enough will finish this dnm and thin
country will bloom," declares a
fighting westerner an bo views tho
crumbling walls of tho half finished
dnm. Ho broods over thu project
Jiitll finally It becomes an nhnesilci
with him. He mortgages everything
hu owns to raise enough money to
carry It out In splto of tho remon
strnnco of all his friends,
"I'm going to build this dam," h
declares. "Kvo known fo ryonrs why
tho old one failed but I nnrcr
thought of risking what I hnd to
help others." Ho builds the dam
nnd In spite of heavy rains that
cause an upper dnm to crumble it
It holds and with it comci the
promise of reclamation, of w.ivlnc
grain fields, orchards hnd green
spaces The courage of Jim Ktn:oll
Is the courage of many another pion
eer, unheralded, unsung,
